As the owner of Chicago Archery Academy, Casey has taught students to aim using Olympic recurve bows, traditional recurve bows, longbows, and compound bows. But the real enthusiasm at his training range stems from his latest creation, Archery Tag, which he describes as "paintball but with bows and arrows."
The event takes place in an arena much like a paintball field, with areas of cover and open expanses. Unlike paintball's projectiles, though, the soft, foam-tipped arrows never leave welts, bruises, or marks. The tip of each arrow resembles nothing so much as a marshmallow, which is not known for its aerodynamics. In fact, the shafts fly through the air slowly enough that a participant who is paying attention can dodge them in helping their team claim victory.
